InsWeb® and Farmers® Insurance Announce AgentInsider®/Farmers Turn-Key Integration

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - March 31, 2011) - InsWeb Corporation (NASDAQ: INSW) and Farmers Insurance announced today that they have partnered to integrate the Farmers Turn-Key system with the AgentInsider® Lead Program and Agent Directory program.

With this integration, Farmers agents and District Managers who purchase auto, home, term life, renters or business insurance leads from AgentInsider can choose to have the cost of those leads automatically deducted from their monthly folio. They can also deduct the cost of their Agent Directory listing. Additionally, as a Turn-Key vendor Ad Aid reimbursements will be automated (subject to Ad Aid guidelines).This saves the agent time and improves their cash flow by eliminating the need for Farmers agents to purchase services from AgentInsider independently and then apply for reimbursement.

"Integrating AgentInsider with Farmers Folio Deduct is another step toward cementing AgentInsider's place as the preferred lead provider of Farmers agents nationwide," said Brad Cooper, Senior Vice President of Operations at InsWeb. "As a Turn-Key vendor, we can offer agents a seamless payment method for purchasing leads through our AgentInsider Program, as well as for participating in our Agent Directory."

Designed from the ground up to be the most flexible, responsive lead provider in the industry, AgentInsider helps local insurance professionals leverage InsWeb's online marketing expertise and gain immediate access to consumers shopping at InsWeb.com and its partners.
